The IFS Green Budget 2015, in association with ICAEW and funded by the Nuffield Foundation, will analyse the issues and challenges facing Chancellor George Osborne as he prepares for his final Budget of this parliament. A selection of chapters will be presented at an event on 4 February 2015, where the full publication will be launched.
The areas covered by IFS researchers will include:
- The evolution of the public finances and risks for the future
- Analysis of what has been happening to earnings and the labour market
- Options for increasing tax or cutting spending on social security
- The outlook for public services spending and the choices over spending allocation
Additional analysis will be provided by ICAEW and Oxford Economics.
